The 0.8.8 update will be dedicated to the 4 birthday of World of Warships. You can celebrate this day in the new port.

Rewards are given for the first win in the update - mechanics of bonuses for the victory are similar to the Snowflakes and Symbol of France. The most valuable rewards are available for victories on tier X ships. 

We understand that those who decided to use ships to get research points may lose some rewards from them. That's why in the 0.8.8 rewards will be given automatically for all ships which have a bonus for victory for research points. If during the event you will research and purchase the ships for which you got your reward automatically, you will be able to get it second time.

Will there be any anniversary Collection, similarly to the past few years as well? 

The camouflages and in general the rewards were pretty welcome.

The Port is top tier, possibly among the 3 best you have created.

Someone eons ago thought that a glass case for the boats one possessed would be nice. You could zoom out to see the large number of models, and could move in and 'walk' down the length of the case until you found the toy boat you wanted to play with, then click on it. This looks to be a nice second to that concept.

I'm not one of them.  I like real looking ports.  My favorite port is the Ocean "port", largely due to the nice, pleasant, neutral lighting, so that I can SEE the camo I've selected.  The idea of a "port" that's a desk in a study looks completely dorky.

The port with the most neutral lighting is actually the Azur Dorm. No single light source, it's uniform all around the model

No SC for T10s?  Reading between the lines, it’s not steel we’re getting :cap_viking:

They haven't given steel for birthday events in the past so I'm guessing there won't be steel this time either (but they may surprise us...between the lines doesn't say we won't get steel).

But there definitely is a lack of SCs mentioned compared to the previous anniversary events...hopefully they're hidden between the lines also.

Great another port I will look at for 10 seconds then switch to ocean.  A proper port interface that isn't layers of clicking and doesn't lag or hog GPU resources more than in a battle would be far more appreciated than the novelty nonsense.

I like the port, I'm neutral on the event until rewards are detailed. If T10s are still given a good reward, I'm fine with not having super containers for them. I REALLY don't need a few hundred more firestarting flags...

Can we please keep this port forever?

Is this currently expected to be true for future events as well? (Where "snowflakes" are a thing.)

Thanks for answering!
